Single Ticket Wins Mega Millions Jackpot

One ticket that had been purchased in Ohio matched all of the numbers required to win the jackpot in the most recent Mega Millions game, and we can confirm that the sum landed was $200 million. If that had been the only top prize won on Friday then it would still have been an exciting night, but the good news is that the jackpot-winning touch was also experienced by one player in the EuroJackpot game. For details of those game and more, read on as we present our usual round-up of the latest lottery results…

Single Ticket Wins Mega Millions Jackpot


19 – 23 – 26 – 27 – 49 Euro Numbers: 03 and 10

EuroJackpot players had seen the top prize roll over for several consecutive draws in recent weeks, and that helped the Friday night jackpot to reach a final value of €32,657,956. The good news is that one ticket matched all of those numbers to win the jackpot outright, and we can tell you that the winning entry had been purchased in Germany. Another single ticket matched all five of the main numbers plus one Euro number to win a second tier prize worth €1,406,004, and more than 593,000 smaller prizes were landed by tickets matching fewer numbers. The jackpot for the next game on Friday 20th November has now been reset and will be worth €10 million.


10 – 17 – 18 – 33 – 40 Lucky Stars: 02 and 08

EuroMillions players weren’t quite as lucky as their EuroJackpot counterparts because none of the tickets entered for the Friday night EuroMillions draw succeeded in winning the jackpot, which was worth just over £92 million (€130 million). Five tickets won £441,327 (€566,130) each by matching all five main numbers as well as one of the Lucky Star numbers, whilst another 18 entries matched the five main numbers only to win £40,863 (€52,419) each. There were over 4.83 million prizes won in total, and there will now be a multi-rollover jackpot worth an estimated £101 million (€144 million) for players to pursue in the next game this Tuesday 17th November.

Mega Millions    

17 – 18 – 31 – 35 – 59 Mega Ball: 09

As we said in our introduction, a single ticket won the Mega Millions jackpot this week, giving one lucky player in Ohio a life-changing prize worth $200 million. Two entries, which had been purchased in California and Ohio, won their owners $1 million each by matching the five main numbers only, and another 63 tickets matched four main numbers and the Mega Ball number to win $5,000 each. There were more than 2.76 million prizes won across the lower levels, and the next Mega Millions game on Tuesday will now offer a brand new jackpot which has an advertised value of $15 million.


14 – 22 – 37 – 45 – 66 Powerball: 05

The Powerball game on Saturday gave players the chance to win a jackpot worth $60 million, but no ticket was able to match the six numbers needed to do that. No tickets were successful at the second prize tier either, but 13 entries did succeed in winning their owners $50,000 each by matching four of the main numbers plus the Powerball number. There were over 398,000 consolation prizes won by standard entries, and more than 107,000 additional prizes were landed by winning Power Play entries. The jackpot in the next game this Wednesday 18th November will now be worth around $70 million.

UK Lotto

02 – 23 – 39 – 54 – 55 – 57 Bonus Ball: 11

The Lotto game had seen one player win big in the midweek draw, and hopes were high that someone else would be able to match all six main numbers in the Saturday night draw. We are pleased to report that those hopes were realised by one ticket, which is now worth the hefty sum of £4,337,627. No second tier prizes were won on Saturday, but 50 tickets won £2,038 each by matching five main numbers only, and more than 1.08 million prizes were landed across the lower tiers. One player won £1 million by matching the Millionaire Raffle number, which was TEAL 5642 5559 and the jackpot in the next Lotto game will be worth an estimated £2.2 million.
